The Ohio Conference Leadership Team has agreed to employ Regional Pastor Cliff Brubaker for a special half-time assignment beginning in April.

Since September 2016 Brubaker has been serving half time as regional pastor and half time with the Year of Covenant process and focusing on trust-building between congregations and the Conference. That second half-time position concluded at the end of March.

Starting in April Brubaker is taking on a half-time assignment working with the new Gathered and Sent initiative, which will continue the work of both the Year of Covenant and the Year of Mission, two initiatives from 2016-17.

In this half-time position, Brubaker also will work with the Leadership Team to guide the hiring process for a half-time conference minister.
